Business cards!

April 19, 2012

New Business Cards!

I picked up my business cards from Moo.com yesterday evening!  They’re in East Providence, so it was a short trip over– nice to save money and time on the shipping.

(Well, I should have saved time. Funny story: I was going to post this right when I got home, but I locked my keys in the car in their parking lot. Oh thank you, thank you AAA. I don’t know why I don’t have your number in my speed dial. And thank you to the nice people at Moo who let me hang out inside even though their office was closing.  Anyways, this meant I spent the rest of the evening rushing around. Hilarious.)

I think they came out pretty cute. It was a last minute decision to go with Moo, so I didn’t really take full advantage of the different images option. But I’m happy with the two I picked.

I especially love the back.

So thumbs up for Moo– good quality, easy interface, and great customer service.– Even if you don’t lock your keys in the car, they’re still really nice and helpful.

Happy Friday the 13th!

Now that we take G to the train every morning, Luna and I get to walk in the grounds at the State House across the street. We love it:

works in progress

I’m still here! I’ve just got my head down, racing to the finish line, trying to finish up a few projects for the New England SCBWI Conference next weekend.

But here’s a peek at what I’m working on.

Video Monday: Rear Window Loop

April 2, 2012

Video Mondays

By gathering the appropriate scenes and then placing them in one wide shot, filmmaker Jeff Desom created a video installation of the neighborhood events as they unroll in Hitchcock’s film “Rear Window.” I love this.

I dissected all of Hitchcock’s Rear Window and stiched it back together in After Effects. I stabilized all the shots with camera movement in them. Since everything was filmed from pretty much the same angle I was able to match them into a single panoramic view of the entire backyard without any greater distortions. The order of events stays true to the movie’s plot.

The whole thing takes twenty minutes to screen, but below is a time-lapse. Wouldn’t you love to see it in person?

Pretty sweet, right?
